APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are a lot of sites that have the very same content on many of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is quite useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared hosting solution that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites since it will start caching their program code. In case you need to run sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC for each and every script application that runs on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account takes one click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you could use the module just for particular websites. This is possible because of the versatility of our cloud platform - multiple versions of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to pick what version will be used for this particular website and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file allows you to use settings which are different from the ones for your account, so you'll be able to take full advantage of APC for some scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you may use some other kind of web accelerator.
